There's been quite a rush on this pattern this week, hasn't there. Your beachy summer top is quite a contrast to my autumnal one! It looks great.

Very nice top. I have this pattern in my stash as well. I think it is time to make this one.

Just before taking the photo, my mom said 'you can see a side roll over your waist, lift your arm up a bit' ;D But the shirring does camouflage much better than a straight cut top!

I've had trouble using a double needle on these knits too. Last time I finally basted above and under the stitching area to hold it in place. Great top.

wow, that top gives you such a great shape that I could not believe it is a post baby bod! Better than surgery. You look fantastic!

You convinced my, I want that pattern. Thank you for this great review. I love your top!

Very nice top. I'm glad to see that it looks good with short sleeves too. This is one of my favorite patterns and seems to skim over the non-svelte areas. Keep sewing them!

So very nice, and no evidence of post-baby tummy anywhere in sight! Love the fit and the seamlines.

Thanks for this review. This pattern has been sitting in my stash for some time now and it might be time to try it out. Yours fits so beautifully and is lovely on you.
